The postmodernist movement began in America around the 1960s – 1970s and then it spread to Europe and the rest of the world. The movement involves an uncertainty towards accepted explanations of reality, which include science, religion, even philosophy itself, and any other objective views. So, consciousness of individual relativity in the world emerges as a product of this larger idea, something that modernists (Modernism) did not explore. Postmodernists find that reality is not found in understanding it, but it is created when the mind tries to discover its own reality. Reality is then relative and only created based on what each person believes is his/her reality. All sorts of social and political conditions play into this, but postmodernism rejects generalizations that assume validity for large groups or cultures and places importance on individual interpretation.
